Looking For Home In Seattle Area

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Personal,

So, I am in the process of looking at homes in the Seattle area for purchase, as it really is just about time to get on that bandwagon. Renting sucks, and I no longer see any reason to continue throwing money away month by month. Buying a home is just smarter. Of course, it is no easy task either. First of all, Zillow, can you explain to me why your site doesn’t work in Safari? I mean, seriously…this is 2007, right?

Aside from that, though, there are just so many places to look for homes. Obviously there are the sites of the traditional real estate agencies, then places like Zillow and Redfin, and of course Craigslist. Of course many homes are simply for sale by the owner, and a lot of those sites miss those unless the owner specifically lists it there. So yeah, there is no simple, easy, one-stop home buying shop that I have found to date - at least not for Seattle and it’s surrounding areas.

Speaking of which…I am so tempted…SO tempted to head a little north up to the Bothell/Redmond area. The sole reason is due to Verizon FIoS, and the promise of a 50 Mbps / 15 Mbps Internet connection for $179.99. That is just unreal, and for a company like Gear Live which is focusing on doing tons of Internet video content. Uploading over that kind of speed would be so much more beneficial and time-saving, and obviously downloading would be even better. Those are the speeds at which we need to be moving data at in this day and age.

Nonetheless, the home search continues…
